My cat, Arthur, is being kept overnight at the vet for some tests. It may be lymphoma or it may not be. Hopefully he just has some sort of stomach bug. I know he’s just a cat, but he’s my pet and if anyone out there could just think good thoughts, just for a moment, well…
eta: He’s home now after four days of tests. he’s still very skinny, but he seems to be doing better – at least he’s keeping food down now. They’ve sent some blood work off to Texas for some more tests. Hopefully we’ll have the results back by the end of the week.
I am attempting to knit a tea cosy, but, alas, it is not going so well. I had it all the way through closing up the handle opening, but then I got a little confused in the pattern and ended up doing all these crazy decreases and, as I suck at backtracking, I had to rip it all out and start over. Then I messed up again about six rows into it. So. I am taking a break and I will try again in a few days.
On the more successful side, however, I have recently almost finished a knitted bunny for my friend’s baby shower in March:
and a close-up of his face which had to be embroidered on:
All he’s missing is a tail and a ribbon tied around his neck! So that’s something, anyway.

Well, my little Arthur is growing up – he had a bit of a tantrum and locked himself in the bathroom last night.
Thing is, he’s a cat.
I closed him in my bathroom last night with food, water, his basket, and a litter box because, for vet reasons, I need to be sure that it’s him doing his “business.” When, after much protestation, I got up to let him out at four in the morning, it was to discover that he had locked the door. Now if it were the push-button lock, it’d be more understandable, but it’s not – it’s the turn-y kind. Thankfully, although I won’t be if I’m ever trying to hide from murderers, it’s fairly simple to unlock the door from the outside using a screwdriver, but it still threw me for a bit of a loop!
